A 43-year-old woman was arrested for attempted murder last week after she stabbed a co-worker with a pair of scissors at a salon on Moss Street in Verulam.

Verulam SAPS communications officer Lieutenant Mark Prakasim said the 25-year-old victim was stabbed twice in her neck and was in a serious condition.

Reaction Unit South Africa (Rusa) head Prem Balram said paramedics arrived on scene and found the victim lying on the floor bleeding profusely from her injuries.

“She was stabilised on scene before being transported to hospital for further medical attention,” said Balram.

Prakasim said police arrested the suspect and charged her for attempted murder.

“We commend Reaction Unit for their quick response in arriving on scene and stablising the victim on scene. Their fast response likely saved her life,” said Prakasim.
